Volunteer Opportunities 

 

 

There are many ways you can serve our community through the Wise County Committee on Aging, Inc.

Here are the top 10 ways.

1. Volunteer to be  a driver! We need  help with the delivery of meals. It could be as little as  2 to 3 hours a week or a month.  If we had more drivers, using their own vehicles, we could have more routes and serve more clients that need our help.

2. Serve as a member of the Board of Directors

3. Assist in fundraising activities so that we can build new kitchen facilities.

4. Assist in presentations to various clubs, churches, and organizations

5. Promote our group at your workplace or church

6. Provide special gifts or services to our clients, e.g., goodie bags, flowers, etc.

7. Adopt a Senior for $20 per month

8. Donate Money or items for the new kitchen so we can prepare our own food for the clients.

9. Donate publicity spots/time to help promote our cause.

10. Donate a Working vehicle  for the Drivers to use to deliver meals.

Recent research studies by the Meals on Wheels Association of America have revealed that the problem of senior hunger in America is indeed growing worse.  Currently, one in nine seniors is at risk of hunger in the United States. You can help end this trend by pledging as little as $25.00 per month to adopt one of our senior clients. Your monthly donation, along with donations from others, will help to provide meals for one person per month -- it costs roughly $150 per month to provide meals to a senior. At the end of the year, you will receive a tax statement of your contributions. Won't you help us end this cycle in Wise County? Our older homebound seniors are counting on you. Thanks for your generosity.
